Learning Objectives

The goal of our program is to develop knowledge and skills in theoretical, computational and application-oriented statistics. We have formulated our learning objectives to achieve this goal. Students will:

  • Be able to restate an investigative question in terms of a statistical model or algorithm.
  • Verbally communicate statistical results clearly to a non-technical audience.
  • Successfully relate theoretical concepts to a real-world problem in a written report.
  • Demonstrate the ability to find appropriate research literature appropriate to the investigative task.
  • Demonstrate that they can carry out a statistical analysis appropriate to the investigative question(s).
  • Provide reproducible statistical analyses using accepted practices of the research community.
  • Demonstrate the ability to communicate statistical results verbally and in writing to both technical and non-technical audiences.
